My Boyfriend, now Husband has introduced me to this place 15 years ago at their original location in San Juan Capistrano.

Nice sized fast food menu. Fresh, tasty and cooked to order. You can never go wrong here. They are the premier chip fryer in this part of the world. take home a large bag of fresh chips. Like I said always good no matter what you order.

This place always seems to be busy, and it's for a reason. Just across the 1 from the beach. Good food and atmosphere. Go back when I can.

This was the best Mexican food in Capistrano in the 70's but now not so much. High priced tourist fare.
